Cloud computing and Digital Transformation has been a powerful enabler for many fields, including genomics. Embracing Digital Transformation offers a practically limitless ability to meet the genomics science demands in both research and medical institutions, that span far beyond the largest institutions with most powerful computers.
Genome-based research is enabling medical researchers to develop improved diagnostics, more effective therapeutic strategies, evidence-based approaches for demonstrating clinical efficacy, and better decision-making tools for patients and providers.
